Explore République without fear in new Story Mode

Stealth survival game République can be pretty intense at times. For players who just want to experience the story and spend time exploring the game’s beautifully rendered environments, however, there’s a new update available which adds an easier “Story Mode” for just that purpose.

Launched in the App Store back in December last year, République features an episodic type of gameplay which sees protagonist Hope fight back against an “an oppressive totalitarian state” (making it pretty appropriate imagery for Apple.) Unlike games such as the tremendous GTA: San Andreas port, République is a console-worthy game especially designed specifically for the touchscreen environment of the iOS platform.

Certainly, it’s an immersive experience, and that doesn’t change with the game’s Story Mode, which simply makes the title more accessible to less experienced players.

It’s the perfect time to investigate République too, since it’s just been made Apple’s App of the Week — meaning that it can be downloaded free of charge until Thursday June 12. The game’s free version includes access to the first episode, but additional episodes will need to be bought by way of in-app purchase.

République can be downloaded in the App Store, available for iOS devices running iOS 7.0 and above. The latest update also adds several important bug fixes, meaning that the game runs better than ever.
